Green Flash Sleepin’ with Shaggy: 4 Years in Brandy Barrels

Four years ago, Green Flash Brewing Co. put their barleywine Shaggy in brandy barrels. In 2013, it’s time to wake Shaggy up. Sleepin’ With Shaggy arrives January 28th.

After spending 4 years in Brandy barrels it became time to unleash the dark monster within. Thick toffee aromatics exude with dense layers of fig, molasses, caramel, and a medley of dark fruits. Sweet flavors of toffee and caramel mingle with the warming spice of vanilla, sherry-like notes, and brandy barrel oak tannin. When served above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (highly recommended) more dark fruits like plum, date, raisin, and fig are further revealed.Our CEO/Founder Mike Hinkley has enjoyed pairing this Brandy Barrel Aged Barleywine with a big stuffed “Shaggy” dog that came from the local fair carnies and therefore we now have “Sleepin with Shaggy”.
